    I'd just buy something that's works... Why re-invent the wheel? You might throw good money away trying... just my 2 cent's worth :)

    A membership site with a BIG twist. Already have much of the basics, just haven't been able to fnd a partner I trust and the initial funding.

    When I do, it will be a biggie.

    Computer Repair Forum, that has levels of service from "free" to "lifetime membership". Depending on status, you get "whenever we get around to you" service to "Right now, I have an Emergency!" service. An interface to on-site techs that get paid. Pay the forum staff a percentage of the revenues generated, so they have a profit-motive to keep things adapting to a changing economic and technical landscape. An ongoing SEO effort built-in, a combination of students, unpaid volunteers and paid staff to optimize for certain keywords, which in this case would be specific error messages so that anyone that typed these error messages in, my forum would be at the top of the SERPs.

    Students, volunteers and paid staff would be scored based on the clarity of their answers and how complete and correct they are, with secondary efforts made to identify those answers which are potential income generators and, where necessary skilled re-writes of those answers would be done in order to maximize both the usefulness of the answer and the revenue generated by it's existence on the forum's server.
